DJ Quest Oil Drum
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Mechanoise
It's Quest from the UK, not the SF scratch hamster, so keep your shorts on. "Oil Drum" goes the straight-ahead nu-breaks route, buzzing a three-note bassline over a thumping beat with bits of space-vacuum noise flitting about. The flip's more electro-tinged "The Raid" offers up the same hot, dark sounds, but unfortunately suffers an overworking of its vocal sample. Still, solid stuff for the floor.
